Resident Info 2023



9am – 6pm, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2023

Dear Resident,

As we approach this year’s Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival, which will take place on Saturday 8th July and Sunday 9th July, I wanted to let you know in good time about the various traffic management measures we are putting in place over the weekend and how they might affect you.

As in previous years we will be employing a professional traffic management company to manage the traffic arrangements over the weekend.  All our plans have been submitted and approved by East Lindsey District Council and Lincolnshire County Council. These temporary restrictions, diversions and alternative parking arrangements are to ensure the safety of residents, visitors and drivers passing through the Village, as well to prevent visitors from parking on your street and causing congestion.

The various restrictions that will apply are listed below[DB1] , over the following pages.  If you live on a road which will be closed to non-residents or is accessible only via a road that is closed then please be aware we will have mailed you two access passes around one month before the event, which will allow you access at all times to your road through the manned road closure points. But please note that these passes will not allow you to park on roads which are subject to no parking restrictions. *

Road Closures – The following roads will be closed to all traffic, but accessible to residents using the passes we have mailed to affected addresses, with the exception of The Broadway and Station Road where there will be no access during the restricted hours.

Please note that access to the Kinema, Teahouse In The Woods, and all residences located on Coronation Road, Manor Road, Spa Road, and King George Avenue will be via the private section of Iddesleigh Road through the double set of white gates near The Cottage Museum, where our Marshalls will escort vehicles through.

As I mentioned above, these restrictions are essential to keep us all safe and reduce congestion within the Village during this very popular weekend.  I do however appreciate that these arrangements will cause inconvenience to some; with that in mind I want to express my sincere thanks to you all for your valued cooperation and continuing support, which is so essential to ensuring that the Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival is such a success, especially after two years off due to Covid restrictions, and continues to benefit the Village as whole in so many ways. I do hope therefore that on the weekend of 8th and 9th July you will be able to enjoy the various attractions and activities at this year’s Festival.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Hunter
